Grand Canyon Lodge - North Rim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We just returned from 2 nights at the North Rim of Grand Canyon staying in a little frontier cabin.
My son and his son and my grand daughter and my husband and I rented a double cabin....in other words, it had a door ajoining the 2 rooms and we each had our own bathrooms. Contrary to many reviews, we were pleasaantly surprised with the condition of the cabin. The bathroom was updated and modern. They provided dispensers for shampoo and lotion and hand soap...surprised us ! The towels were thick and clean and the beds were very comfortable.
We brought our fold up chairs and sat out front on the small lawn space for cocktails. There was a ceiling fan with lights and one lamp on the desk. Do bring a head lamp if you plan to read in bed. We hauled a few coolers in and actually.....don't tell anyone, had a blow up mattress on the floor for my 3rd grand child as the rooms only accomodate 3 each. We were Very happy with the experience and hope we help those out there considering a Frontier Cabin to feel good about their decision.

Room Tip: Cell phone reception is spotty.......but, do everyone a favor and turn off your cell phone when you...

The North Rim is one of the must - sees in the United States. Since this lodge sits on the rim it has a phenomenal view. Enjoy sitting on the porch looking at the sunset.

Unfortunately the general service at the lodge leaves something to be desired: While it is not too surprising that there is no air conditioning, one does not expect staff to try to argue that it is normal for a heater to only blast in fiercely hot air at maximum temperature, ie. to always heat the air regardless of the temperature setting.

We enjoyed the food at the restaurant but of course the price is in accordance with the location and a bit higher than elsewhere. The food is good but not fantastic. It is worth the wait over getting a pizza at the "Deli" though. The Deli was out of most things (maybe just as well since what they had was not very tempting).

For breakfast go to the saloon: Great staff, good espresso and fine bagels. Definite beats the Deli for breakfast.

The lodges are a bit worn. Notably there appears to be a need for mousetraps in all the rooms and the wire meshes in the windows will not hold any insects out.

Granted this is a lodge, not a hotel, but it is not that far from a tent either. Actually, if you hike the Grand Canyon with a tent you know ahead of time that you have no cooling options but the wind will cool you down and you do not have to put up with a broken heater.

Room Tip: Note that not all rooms on the rim actually have a view.

We spent two nights at the Grand Canyon Lodge, North Rim, two weeks ago. We drove for what seemed like forever, to get there, but was it ever worth it! We arrived at dusk to see a field of buffalo and kept driving until we finally arrived at the Lodge. It was late and dark and we went to our simple room (very simple with a twin and a double bed, bathroom), but very clean, log cabin. The next morning we had the amazing experience of walking to the main lodge, stepping down to the lower level deck and having our first glimpse of the awesome Grand Canyon! Wow!
We enjoyed the "Cookout" that evening, a fun experience with yummy food and fun entertainment for the whole family, did a hike and just kept looking at the view. We were moved to another room on our second night (204) and it was MUCH larger (it was an accessible unit). Lovely and clean! So glad we made the trip!

Room Tip: If you are doing the "Cookout", make sure you get a ticket when you book at the front desk...

Just stayed at a Western Cabin on the North Rim. The cabin had a classic National Park feel to it while still maintaining modern conveniences. The bedding was very comfortable and bathroom facilities were adequate. Of course the best thing about was the location. Mine was 100 yards from the rim. Some cabins are even closer. We had a very joyful evening.

The lodge also is a beautiful facility and IMO beats anything on the south side. This facility is classic as it gets and the view in the lobby is breathtaking. The management has taken a few steps to maintain a classic feel. I bet this facility looks almost the same as it did 60 years ago. Definitely one of the Park systems better facilities. The staff was courteous and helpful and even took a little extra time to plan our hike.

We didn't have a chance to eat at the restaurant that has a great view of the canyon, but it is very beautiful. We got our food from the deli which was ok but quick. We got pizza that was average. Also we did get to hang out at Roosevelt's Rough Rider Saloon. This is a classic saloon and worth you're while to grab a beer. Also got breakfast here. Little over priced but you're paying for the view.

This is the only hotel facility to stay at on the North side. I think nearest hotel is over an hour away. But even though they have a monopoly, this is still a great facility to stay at and worth the money.

Room Tip: There is really no other hotel facilities close to the North rim. If you want to spend quality time...

The food selection was minimal. That is the only bad thing I have to say about the lodge. The main restaurant takes reservations and I guess I must be slow but I couldn't get a dinner reservation for before 8:30pm. The other option is pizza by the slice or sandwiches at the deli or saloon. I recommend hitting the general store in the campground for food and drinks because it is much cheaper than at the lodge. Anyway, all of the rest was glorious. My wife and I rented a car and drove in from Vegas. The trails are awesome and the scenery is devine. Two nights were enough though. Happy trails!

booking a cabin at the north rim of the grand canyon, n my mind, meant rustic. wow, was i wrong! we had a pioneer cabin, 2 bedrooms. everything has been thought out for the small-ish space. heaters n the bathrm, hooks, outlets, fridge, etc. we stayed for 2 nites & were mega satisfied. all the amenities of a 5 star hotel n a stunning nature environment. no wifi or tv. wifi is available down the road 1 mile at the campground coffee shop, quite adequate. breakfast was not included but served n a lovely dining rm & very tasty. the views & the trails, all right there, were amazing. service was superb.

Only had the one night due to late booking (6 months ago!) but we loved every minute of it. Spectacular drive in, amazing main lodge, and fantastic uninterrupted views. Food in the lodge was surprisingly excellent and it was amazing to be able to grab a beer and watch the sunset from the balcony. Not crowded, and the night sky full of stars was something to behold (better than Bryce, as no traffic headlamps).

Our "hut" was small and dark but perfectly adequate given you spend most of the time outdoors. Ranger talks were great, especially the condor presentation.

Can't wait to go again!
